Award-winning comics creator and author of the bestselling Invisible Emmie Terri Libenson returns with a companion that captures the drama, angst, and humor of middle-school life. Middle school is all about labels. Izzy is the dreamer. There’s nothing Izzy loves more than acting in skits and making up funny stories. The downside? She can never quite focus enough to get her schoolwork done. Bri is the brain. But she wants people to see there’s more to her than just a report card full of As. At the same time, she wishes her mom would accept her the way she is and stop bugging her to “break out of her shell” and join drama club. The girls’ lives converge in unexpected ways on the day of a school talent show, which turns out to be even more dramatic than either Bri or Izzy could have imagined.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Charming…Libenson stresses the importance of being true to oneself, and readers will root for the characters to succeed.” School Library Journal
“Libenson nicely touches on classic middle-grade tropes… A poignant twist ending adds a heartening note to an already charming story.” Booklist
“This funny and heartfelt tale will ring true for anyone who’s ever felt invisible.” Victoria Jamieson, author-illustrator of Roller Girl, on Invisible Emmie

Author Bio: Terri Libenson

Author Bio: Terri Libenson

Terri Libenson may or may not have been inspired by her own mostly good, sometimes harrowing middle school experiences in writing Invisible Emmie. She most definitely did draw a lot during class, which worked out well, since she grew up to be a cartoonist: she is the creator of the internationally syndicated, Reuben Award–winning comic strip The Pajama Diaries and was a longtime writer of humorous cards for American Greetings. Terri lives with her husband and two daughters in Cleveland, Ohio.
